Sperm donation is an amazing gift that could make an incredible difference to people who, without the help of men like you, may not be able to have a family of their own. At GCRM we always welcome sperm donations, as donor sperm is in very short supply. We realise how important our sperm donors are, and appreciate the gift they are giving to others.
The donation process is not time-consuming and is very discreet. Our environment is comfortable and our friendly team are experienced in managing sperm donation programmes.
We are looking for sperm donors who fit the following criteria:
Between 18 and 41 years of age ( until your 41st birthday)
In general good health
Available to make around 12 visits to the clinic over a three month period
Sperm donors must consent to create 10 families
Simply put – there is a huge lack of donors in the UK – Without donor sperm, some families will never have the chance to become parents. By donating you will be helping:
You first provide a sample for semen analysis and undergo some screening tests, to make sure there’s no medical or genetic reason why you shouldn’t donate. We then set up the donation appointments at a mutually convenient time, making around 12 visits to the clinic over a three month period.
Our sperm donors make around 10 donations on separate visits over an agreed length of time (usually between 3-6 months). Sperm donors are reimbursed £35 for each visit at the end of donation to cover travel and work expenses incurred during the process. Please contact us if you are interested in becoming an altruistic sperm donor.
Support and Counselling
All our donors are encouraged to use our counselling service before they start a donation cycle and at any point during or after the donation process. Our trained and experienced counsellor will discuss the issues around donation and its implications. Things like:

Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Do I have any parental responsibility for donor-conceived children?
A: No, the recipients are the parents of the child. You have no financial or legal obligation or responsibility.
Q: Will the recipients of my sperm ever know who I am?
A: If you are a donor, recipients will not be told your identity. You will complete a characteristics form that will aid the recipients in choosing a donor but no personal information will be disclosed. If a child is born as a result of your donation, they are able to find out detailed information about you once they reach 18 years of age and this information could lead to them identifying you which is why counselling is strongly recommended.
